Plan J-1691


For a lot no larger than 50', this trim expansion house is a "natural". Brick and stone veneer are the perfect exterior materials, and contrasts of bright windows and wooden gable make the house sparkle with charm. As you enter, you'll find a vestibule formed by a coat closet on one side, and wood lattice posts on the other. The stunning ranch picture window at the front makes the living room seem even larger, and through a graceful arch, the dining room behind is every bit as smart for formal as for informal dining. A most unusual touch is the floor-to-ceiling glass partition that separates the kitchen, providing bright interior contrasts for both rooms. With work areas arranged in a convenient L at the far side and back, you'll want to tuck a breakfast bar right on that unusual wall. The covered porch at the back is inviting and you'll take advantage of outdoor cook-outs on a portable grill in good weather. The two bedrooms shown have corner windows and closets are especially large. They share a full-sized bathroom with built-in vanitory at one side. For future expansion, the attic can be turned into two more bedrooms, with a shed dormer at the back to form pretty alcoves and add a second complete bathroom. For best use of space, and for an easy building budget, this expansion plan is tops.
